Pumpkin Patch Sneak Peak

Today we all headed out to a pumpkin patch in our area.  All except hubby, he had to work of course.  So Tuff was quit the grumpy little boy since he didn’t get his morning nap.  He finally started getting a little happier when we ready to leave.  Harrison was just a busy little man and I couldn’t get him to stop long enough to get a good picture.  And Ada was chillin along for the ride. 

We had a good time even though it was only suppose to be 80 degrees today it was a little warm in the non-shaded areas.

This is Harrison, Jayce and Tuff riding around in the wagon.  That didn’t last too long because they were ready to get out and explore on their own.

I think Harrison loved these little baby kittens

April and Ashley did get some more pictures of me with all three grandbabies and some of them by themselves so I will do another post on those.  My camera batteries decided to go dead so this is as far as I got.

The Love Bug Has Hit Our Family

This past Sunday my Mother-in-law married her love, Ray.  She has been “single” for about 5 years now and has been living in the retirement apartments in our little town.  She wasn’t looking to find love but it seems God sent it her way out of the blue.  So she kind of kept her new love a secret from us for a month or so and then she finally came clean.  Well, we all really like Ray and he has just brought so much happiness to my mother-in-law.  As you can see in this picture….

67225_486530080347_759285347_6875803_3029322_nSo my daughter April, put together a sweet little wedding with the help of Ray’s daughter Missy, and my sister-in-law, Melissa.

and this is all of our crazy family…….we were all cracking up at something Ray said!!  We did get a more serious pose but I thought this would be fun to post since this is the way we are most of the time anyway!


So congratulations Mom on a happy life full of love and laughter, you deserve it!!

There has been a murder suspect on the loose in my hometown, Clay Hill, FL for 5 days now and they finally caught him.  I’m pretty sure from what the news media is saying(if they got it right this time) that he is dead.  There apparently was a shoot off between the suspect and the police.  This has all been happening right within a few miles from my mom and sisters live.  He apparently on Monday, killed his brother and his brothers friend and shot both of his parents who are going to be ok.  This has been crazy.  I hate being so far away from my family when something like this has happened.  Not that I could really do anything to protect them it’s just you never know.  This world is really getting so dangerous!  It’s sad that we can’t feel safe in our own homes.

Boy or Girl?

My baby sister went for her ultrasound this morning.  She has to see a high risk OB in addition to her regular OB because of her age so she was able to find out the sex of the baby a little early.   So is it a boy or girl????? 








IT’s A BOY!!!!

They will name him Waylon Beau or Beau Waylon.  They haven’t decided which name will come first yet.   We are all so excited since she has waited so long to have a baby. 


And, has anyone ever been to a Tastefully Simple party???? Well, I went to one last night and I LOVED all of their spices, dips, bread and even their few deserts they have.  I will be having a party of my own next month.  I was so impressed with the little out-of-pocket cost and also they provide the kit with all the spices and mixes needed.  We got to sample about 10 different dips, sauces, breads, and even a Carrot Cake Crispy Cheese Ball!! Which was actually really good. It was all very yummy and I look forward to having a party!

Oh Happy Day!!


Yesterday our baby girl married her high school sweetheart!  It was a beautiful day and a beautiful ceremony.  Our Uncle David and Aunt Bonnie graciously loaned their home for the big day!


The desert table


The weather was just beautiful until the wind picked up and all the candles had to be relit!  The scenery was perfect!

004 It was a little bright at this time of day but the ceremony was right before it was dark.  We think we should have started about 30 minutes before but it turned out perfect.  This is the arch that Ashley and Jordan stood under.


The Bride and Groom

The Bride and Son


The Father of the Bride


The Bride and her sisters, April, Tori and BreeAnn


The fabulous coordinator, Sister of the Bride! Thank you April for all your hard work that you did for your sisters big day! I love you!


A big thank you to BreeAnn for singing (Blessed, by Martina) while the mothers were escorted down! 


And a really BIG thank  you to Tori for helping with Harrison while April and Brandon were getting things underway.


And Ashleys sweet friend Ashley, for literally “getting her makeup on”.


And Kelly did an AMAZING job with her hair.  Which for some crazy reason I did not get a picture of!! I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture of the them. 


Now just because this is my blog and I love my grandbabies!

Tuff was not feeling well.  He had been running a low grade fever for a few days so he wasn’t into the whole wedding business.  So therefore, getting pictures with him smiling was impossible.


Harrison was all over the place!! He loves being outside so he was running all around and loved his mamas bouquet!


And our little Butter Bean (Ada) all decked out in fall colors. She slept through almost the whole ceremony!


So we all had a great time celebrating with the new Bride and Groom!!!
